After months of wear and tear, student’s backpacks begin to wear out around January. Seatack AAD always needs new backpacks that will replace old worn out backpacks as needed.

Our Dreamers are often in need of new coats. New coats are welcomed from November through March. All sizes are needed.
Uniform Drive – Click here to sign up to donate item(s)
AAD students wear uniforms daily. The normal day-to-day wear and tear presents a need for their uniforms to be replaced on a regular basis. AAD is always in need of navy blue pants (sizes 6-12), all black tennis shoes (kids 13 – kids 6), and black or brown belts (small and medium).
Thanksgiving and Holiday Basket Drive – Click here to sign up to donate item(s)
Many of our families need meals during the holidays. To provide holiday meals for our families, we collect sweet potatoes, green beans, corn, mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy, cranberry sauce, rolls, butter, and pies. Additional items to get the families through the holiday breaks include peanut butter and jelly, ramon noodles, cereal, canned chicken, and soups. Items needed by November 15th and December 14th.

The spring 2018 date is TBD.

Mentoring Program – Click here to express interest in participating
For volunteers interested in serving as a mentor, a Mentor Program application must be completed. The application process will involve a selection process (to match the mentor and mentee), a screening process, and a timeline to ensure a relationship is established and cultivated. Once the application is complete goals will be outlined.
